Protea Hotel Karridene Beach gets new look

The Protea Hotel Karridene Beach will close from 2 May to 8 July for extensive refurbishment. The hotel, on KwaZulu-Natal’s South Coast, is situated near the town of Amanzimtoti alongside the Umsimbazi Lagoon, just 20 minutes from Durban. The overhaul includes redoing the bathrooms, the installation of refurbished furniture and new carpets, installing new air-conditioners, putting in new carpeting, redoing the three suites completely, and a facelift for the restaurant, bar, reception area and the public toilets in the reception and conference area. “The official relaunch date is 28 July, but rooms and other facilities will become available well in advance of that date, in a staggered rollout from the latter part of June,” says Danny Bryer, Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue Management of Protea Hotels.
